RE: Bennetts
Hello Anna,
Please forgive my late reply!!!!!I enjoyed reading your lovely letter to me. I took a break from my research to take care of my mom. She has Dementia and it's been a tough year! She is from the Bennett branch. I've seen your name on some of the Missouri Memorials and I think you gave a few of them to me!

I see we share Susan Holt as our 3rd great grandmother and Abner Holt as our 4th great grandfather. My 2nd great grandfather Benjamin Bennett and your 2nd great grandmother Ann Catherine Bennett were sibling as I'm sure you know...Nice to meet a Bennett cousin!!!

I'm in contact with my mother's first cousin Carolyn Sapp Allee. My Great grandmother Hattie Bennett married a Basinger. Carolyn's mother was Hattie's daughter who married a Sapp.

I'm sorry to hear your story of Carolyn Cain. I have old letters written by Willis Bennett to my Great Grandmother Hattie. My collection of photo's and letters from the Bennett's are priceless to me!

I would love to share stories and info with you. I'm always seeking info on the Holts and Bennett's!!

I'm back on Find A Grave and would love to correspond with you.

I'm currently researching My Basinger branch... Very diffulcult because of the misspelling in the US Census of Baysinger and Basinger.
My Great grand father is buried at Dry Fork Church but he died in the depression and Hattie had no money to buy a stone marker. The mentally handicap groundskeeper thought he was helping by pulling up all the plastic grave markers. From what I learned, Dry Fork Church burned and so did his record of being buried there. His parents and brother are there. I would love to know how to locate him....One of my to do task. I want to make a trip up to Callaway soon...Possibly early this fall.
I look forward to hearing back from you!

Cousin Tricia

RE: John Williams
Wow, you are a real detective! I would be interested in seeing some of the documentation once you get everything pinned down. I don't know anything about Susan, other than verifying where she was buried when we traveled to Missouri. It must have been one of your other contacts who suggested Susannah was her mother, because I didn't have anything about that. Thanks for keeping me posted on your progress.

RE: William Strother
Hello Anna,

I believe it is William Strother, his wife Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman and his wife Susanna Coleman. However, there is no writing left on the four tombstones - it has weathered away, which would seem to indicate that the tombstones are very old. They are located on private property in a small grove of trees in front of our house at 475 Arrowhead Springs, Versailles, KY.

This is a quote from page 60 of the Register of the State Historical Society, Vol. 19, No. 55 (January 1921). (notes in parentheses are mine).

"I am informed that the old homestead (of Susanna Hawkins Coleman - daughter of Thomas Coleman) is now the property of J.A. Eaton (our property is part of what was formerly the Eaton property based on late 1800's/early 1900's county maps). I am quite sure that the remains of William Strother, his wife, Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman, and his wife Susanna, and perhaps a number of descendants were buried on the Eaton farm."

According to our neighbour, who has lived here since the land was divided, the foundations of the old home were on a creek bed about 100 yards from the cemetery. I have not had the opportunity to explore and see if I could find the foundation stones.

HTML & Memorial Transfers
I have copied and pasted below the HTML programming to return links in the bio section of Find A Grave Memorials. One of two things will happen when I mash the "Leave This Message" button: 1) the programming won't be changed or 2) more likely Find A Grave will act on the programming and return garbage. If lucky 1) will happen, but it may not be clear how to proceed.
Text Find A Grave Visitor Sees

Just checked and found four Memorial transfer requests sent to you know who on March 15 using SAC's. In doing so, my Contributor number and email address are there, as well as all remaining necessary info. I don't understand sending to info@__. Do you mean I have lots of good family info I want to enter and it would be so much easier if I had control to do it myself. The only response I've had from this machine or person was when I pointed out a duplicate Memorial. That got "merged".

RE: Kauffman Transfer
You are very Welcome and please do let me know when you complete it. Your work on find a grave is wonderful and the information you can find is much more than most of us. Had one of those days because of another member on here as well. Do not let them get to you and keep your wonderful work up and your head held high for the memories you help to save for other to enjoy.

RE: Gentry Family
Actually, I was asking about Rhodes (1804-1854). I created that memorial page nearly five years prior and he is a direct descendant. At the time I didn't know where he was buried. I am okay with deleting mine but I would prefer not to since I have all the links established. Let me know how you want to handle it.

RE: Capt. Silas Bent
Anna - I added the information you had on the other one to the one in Cave Hill - is that ok with you? If you would like me to transfer him to you I would be happy to do so. Then you could delete the other one. He is not my family. Just make a request via the edit button.

RE: Alexander Ross
Hi Anna,
I regret I'm not related to the Ross line. I started working on this early cemetery because my wife has relatives there (see Find A Grave Memorial# 41531174). I found his and his wife's data at wttp:// #82 & 83 in the Watson list. There is also a Ross family tomb (#82).
Best wishes,

William Strother
Hello Anna,
I'm doing research on a farm I purchased which has several tombstones on it. I believe it may contain the Strother family burial ground including William Strother's graves. Here are the 'clues'...

clue 1... .Hawkins DNA blog
There is more information about descendents of these children in Millie Farmer's book

Also from the Ky Register: "A few years after the marriage of Susannah and Thomas Coleman they with the four Hawkins children and Susannah's father, Wm Strother, of Orange and his second wife (with whom he had no children) came to Kentucky to live and settled on a large estate near Mortonsville, in Woodford Conty where they all lived and died. When I was a boy I was shown the burying ground that was then in bad shape and it is doubtful if any marks remain to indicate the graves of each".


From the Book: History of Woodford County

William Strother bought land in the county from Col. Richard Young as early as 1789 and from James Bullock Jr., in 1794. In his will ..... I am informed that the old homestead is now the property of J.A. Eaton. I am quite sure that the remains of William Strother, his Wife, Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman and his wife, Susanna, and perhaps a number of descendants were buried on the Eaton Farm
